Blanched Cardoon 'Ivory White Indented', late September. "The cardoon seed of this crop was sown in April under glass and grown throughout the summer...In September the leaves were drawn up around a stake driven in near the centre, tied, and a covering of cardboard and hessian was then wrapped around the leaf stalks to exclude light... Checking on the blanching process will start in early October." [West Dean Garden, West Sussex]
